Use a watering can
Request a metal watering can as an early gift. It’s a pleasant way to water and less wasteful than a sprinkler. Plus it looks attractive wherever you leave it in the garden.
Make a scarecrow
Check out the internet for instructions on how to make a scarecrow and make one with your kids or grandkids.
Feed your veges
Tomatoes, peppers and courgettes will appreciate a weekly feed of liquid tomato food or a flower and fruit fertiliser.
Clean up furniture
Give outdoor furniture a once-over. Make sure all your canvas chairs are secure, wipe off any bird droppings, give tables a wipe and clean your umbrellas.
